We have three parking lots, each marked with signs indicating they are for First Presbyterian or City Tree Christian School visitors. One is located on Elm Street between Fourth Avenue and Third Avenue, just north of the church. If using a GPS navigation device, enter the address of 320 Elm Street, San Diego, CA 92101. The other two parking lots are located on Third Avenue between Date street and Elm street. (To find these lots using a GPS device, enter the address 1742 Third Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.)
There are usually additional parking spaces available on the street, along Third Avenue from Cedar north to Fir Street (3 full blocks) and on Elm Street from Second Avenue to Fifth Avenue. Metered parking is FREE on Sundays.
First Presbyterian Church is located at 320 Date Street, between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue, just north of the I-5 freeway. If using a GPS navigation device, enter the address of 1742 Third Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101 to reach parking reserved for new visitors. Read more about parking below.
There is an entrance to the Church on Fourth Ave and on Date St. To drop off attendees, please use Fourth Ave or Date St for the closest accessibility to the entrances.
Handicap Accessible Entrances
For those who are mobility challenged, we have two street level entrances, one on Third Avenue between Date and Elm streets (west side of the building) and the other on Fourth Avenue at the corner of Fourth and Date. Greeters are usually close by to offer assistance and direct drivers to the nearest parking space after dropping off passengers.
Bus routes 3, 11, and 120 drop off and pick up near the church. Tell the driver you are going to First Presbyterian Church and he or she should be able to advise you on the best stop to take. A map of downtown bus routes can be downloaded from the MTS website at http://www.sdmts.com/Planning/googleTP.asp.
The Fifth Avenue station of the Blue and Orange line trolleys is the closest trolley station to the church. From the station, head one block west to Fourth Avenue and walk north for 7 blocks.
Senior Assisted Parking
Designated parking spaces on the west side of Third Avenue between Date and Elm streets are clearly marked and reserved for Senior Assisted parking on Sunday mornings for those who may need to park closer to the church entrance on Third Avenue to minimize walking distance. Note that these parking spaces are not fully compliant spaces and will not accommodate those requiring extra wide access. If using a GPS navigation device, enter the address of 1742 Third Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.
Handicap Parking Spaces
There are numerous handicap parking spaces located on the public streets as well as in our three church parking lots.
